Property description

The ancient 16th-century stone Villa Massa stands in panoramic position in Garfagnana, between Lucca and Versilia. It features a private swimming pool and a small garden. Free Wi-fi is available in the house.

The villa has been finely renovated respecting its original style and using traditional materials, such as terracotta tiles, stone and wood. It is furnished in period style and with great attention and care to details.

Standing in Massa Sassoroso (850 m above sea level), a typical village of Garfagnana on the side of the Pania di Corfino and close to the Parco Naturale dell`Orecchiella (Orecchiella Natural Park), the villa is the ideal destination for relaxing holidays and at the same time an excellent starting point for visiting cities of art such as Pisa, Lucca and Florence or for spending a day at the sea (56 kilometres away), on the fashionable Versilia Riviera.
The villa features a private swimming pool (7.5x5.5 m), and a large furnished balcony covered with an arched loggia

Garfagnana: Garfagnana is 'Hidden Tuscany' at its best. With its stunning scenery it is the best area in Tuscany for walking and outdoor activities. We have close ties with an Outdoor Activities company who offer many international class adventures.

Castelnuovo, the nearby market town, has many restaurants, cafes, bars, supermarkets and all other types of shops. There is a tourist information office and a weekly market selling a wide variety of fashion, household goods, flowers, fruit and vegetables.

Mountain biking, hill walking and horse riding are all available locally.

Car: Recommended

The area around the commune of Villa Collemandina has some of the most beautiful scenery in Garfagnana, which itself has arguably the loveliest and most dramatic scenery in all of Tuscany.

The natural park of the Orichiella, with all its tourist attractions, is within the boundaries of the commune.

Garfagnana has the best walking in Tuscany, and there are a range of outdoor activities to suit everyone. There are also many medieval villages in the area which have interesting artistic attractions.
